Causes of fatigue and nausea in stage 3 kidney disease

Anemia is the major culprit of fatigue in stage 3 kidney disease. It is a condition in which the number of red blood cells is lower than normal.Healthy kidneys can produce EPO which can stimulate the production of red blood cells.However,when the kidneys are impaired, they will fail to make EPO normally.As a result,less red blood cells will be made,thus giving rise to anemia.Red blood cells can carry oxygen to body tissues and cells over the whole body. Without enough oxygen supply, the patients will become tired easily. That is how fatigue occurs in stage 3 kidney disease.

Causes of nausea in stage 3 kidney disease

In stage 3 kidney disease,high levels of wastes and toxins will build up in body.The uremic toxins will irritate gastrointestinal tract,thus leading to nausea.In addition,if the gastrointestinal tract is flooded with fluid, it also can contribute to nausea.

Ways to deal with fatigue and nausea in stage 3 kidney disease

As fatigue is mainly due to anemia,the primary treatment goal is to treat anemia.Generally,artificial EPO is injected.It can stimulate the bone marrow to produce red blood cells,thus increasing the total number of red blood cells.In addition, increased supplement of iron and folic acid may be recommended.

If serious nausea occurs,medications may be prescribed to control it.However,as mentioned above,nausea is due to high accumulation of uremic toxins in body.To control nausea completely,the primary treatment is to remove wastes from body.
